I'm describing this Chesapeake Bay Beach Club affair as romantic, but honestly?  It's so much more than that.  Think the classic stylings of Kruse & Vieira Events, beautiful florals crafted by Petal And Print and the sweetest British meets American touches.  In other words?  It's absolute perfection... and you can see it all captured beautifully by Krista A. Jones in THE VAULT right here.

From the Bride.... Justin and I met soon after I moved to London from Maryland for my Master's degree six years ago. I've always had an obsession with British culture and history and knew from an early age that I would eventually marry a Brit!

Although we met and still live in London, we both wanted to have our wedding close to my family in Maryland and on the water – something a bit different from the usual English garden wedding. We had over 40 people come over from the UK and wanted to incorporate a few nods to British culture throughout the day. Our signature cocktails were The Brit and The Yank, which consisted of a cucumber rose gin and tonic and sweet tea vodka, respectively. Some of the flowers littered throughout the venue were held in vintage tea tins, and Justin and his groomsmen looked very handsome in the traditional English morning suit. We had a cricket (Justin's true love) theme for our escort board and table names, which our planners, Kruse & Vieira Events, executed without flaw. As a lover of Tudor history, we also had the Tudor rose as a rose gold wax stamp on all of the place card names.

K&V Events saw our vision for a dual-nationality, glam wedding with a loose, romantic and organic feel (quite the brief) instantly. They were able to turn every area of the venue into something better than we could have imagined, including arranging some of the flower decor. Petal & Print put together our gorgeous bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces in a loose style with creams and whites, soft pinks and lots of greens. From the soft breeze and lapping water during the ceremony to the absolute best filet mignon and crab cake, the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club was the perfect venue, and Krista and Davey from Krista A. Jones Photography captured the soft golden light of the sun setting perfectly. All set to music from the beautiful voice and acoustic guitar of the 3West Band, the day was intimate, elegant and strangely relaxing.

From start to finish we and our guests were so impressed by all of our vendors – we could never give them enough praise nor gratitude for helping to turn one of the most important days of our lives into an absolute dream.
